8:18 am
neighborhood but first mention the problem we're addressing through the work we're doing oufk you know our neighborhoods in southeast san francisco are heavily impacted by environmental and economic and social inequalities those are the result of a long history of poor land use policymaking that have hurt community of color in particular we can't meet in the mission without talking about the current crisis of gent indication the as mentioned before the previous presentation that not only is san francisco as a whole as the tab both facing the pressures but the mission is grounding ground zero this is hard to read in the mission right now the medium for
8:19 am
a one barroom apartment is $3,000 so this is an example of a kind of economic impact we're feeling in the neighborhood as well as a lot of evictions that are displaci displacing working class families i've mentions in particular from the mission once again i apologize this chart is hard to read but the mission has the highest number of ellis act evictions displacement is a public health issue and an environmental justice issue and disparticular time is a climate issue because of the impacts there's been shifts in the population of the may be ass as you can see from
8:20 am
234506789 to 2010 the latino population in the inner mission doctors by 10 percent even though the population of latinos has dlrd decreased in the mission district grown in the tenderloin and hunters point for example, regardless the population shifts the mission district remains the krltd heart and soul of the latino community you see is intoouk the building not van ness but on mission and 44 accounting street i definitely feel the presence of a vibrant communicated very important in this context for us is also the environmental and environmental health impacts we see in the neighborhood based on stationary and non-stationary pollution sources
8:21 am
for example, a map of the pollution and the freeways you can't quite see it but the higher pollution levels is closer to the freeways but the ratio of demographics the higher the people of color in those areas as we know environmental impacts has been stated are disare proportionally faced in the community of color i'm sure you're aware of this has specific health impacts asthma and other health issues that heavily impact the residents in our neighborhoods other important correlation to go make around vial impact and health is also we're beginning to grapple with increasing with the impacts of the climate change there's a could
8:22 am
recommendation around the vial impacts and climate mobilities so for example, this is a map that shows the cumulative 1r50ush89 score by looking at the percentage of the percentage of tree canopy and the percentage of elderly living alone and the temperature change and other things the reder areas have the higher vulnerability dense i did population so once again i'm not here to sort talk about the bad stuff i think that the commission and the department knows those things and you are all gap el about how to make san francisco a safer and a cleaner city but you want to talk about the issues being
8:23 am

we do this work through door to door engagement neighbor to neighbor talking to the folks and getting them involved in the community issues through getting folks to create those local solutions we know that people who live, work and play in the neighborhoods are the best planners for their neighborhoods so we we work on the community side to raise our voices and make sure that through community advocacy that we are informing city agencies and policymakers about what we need from the ground up even a city like san francisco it is too often from the top down with this it has relative for example, us seeing new park and
8:25 am
housing here in the mission at 17th and fulsome new housing at 19 and mission down the street new urban farms we've worked with the folks in the neighborhood to get the city to purchase land or dedicate land for those efforts but i should say the practice we want affordable housing but we also want green healthy housing we recognize that san francisco is to be a leader in the being a green city that all those projects sprouting ulcer up in the neighborhoods need to be developed with that important land and your department plays a key roll other works we're investing in creating the community of practice of working with one
